Hi MIUI Fans,

Nowadays, although more and more places are covered with Wi-Fi, we are still using lots of mobile data every day, during commuting, going sightseeing, or being in places without Wi-Fi coverage. For me when I am at home, I always use Wi-Fi. But when I am out or about to go somewhere, that’s where I start to use my limited mobile data.

Recently due to the festive period I became a shopaholic and a social media/forum addict. I have been visiting the online shops to buy stuffs. At the same time, I have been accessing to Facebook and MIUI forums as frequently as I have time. Eg. Toilet breaks, meal breaks etc.

With all these frequent surfing and accessing to applications,below are my top 3 data sucker apps.

1)     Facebook – With all those friends sharing photos and videos, how can you resist not clicking and watch it?
2)    Chrome – Forum surfing has evolved to allow multiple pictures to be added. Advertisements add in to data usage as well.
3)     MIUI forum application – So many interesting contents to read.

Thankfully for Xiaomi, there is a very powerful application that allows you to not only just look at how much data has been used by applications, but also allows you to set data limits (based on your data plan) as well as to allow you to set which application to prevent the use of the limited mobile data that you have.

This is what you can do to check your data usage.:-
1)    Go to the Security Application > Data usage> Data usage stats

This is what you can do to restrict data usage for application specific.:-
1)   Go to Security Application > Data usage> Restrict data usage. You will be able to toggle to allow that specific application to allow mobile data.

So MIUI Fans,
What are your top 3 apps that use the most mobile data?
Are you doing any data usage monitoring or data restrictions?

Share your top 3 data sucker applications and data saving tricks with me either with screenshots or list of your top 3 applications. J

Anyone who replies with valid entries before 16th December 2016 will win  Medal.
